Where does AMQP come into play?

Asked by HP on 2011-07-25

So I made calls to openstack through ec2, like *euca-describe-images* and *euca-run-instances*, traced how the call went through the system by looking at logs, and never see AMQP come into play. It looks like nova-api calls nova-compute, nova-network directly... I know that nova uses carrot framework to work with rabbitmq, and found two modules that implement rpc calls (rpc.py and fakerabbit.py).

Here is how I see the process of running an instance:
1. Call made through euca, goes through ec2 log request, authenticate adminrequest authorizer ec2executor,
2. ec2executor calls APIRequest.invoke(...), which calls ec2 cloud CloudController.run_instances, which then uses an instance of compute.API to execute method create(...)..., then _format_run_instances(...), then _format_instances(...).

Did not see any AMQP whatsoever.
Guide me please; what did I miss here?

Thanks

API uses rpc.cast and rpc.call to send a message to nova-compute. Nova compute runs a ComputeManager wrapped in a service.Service which listens for messages sent via rpc.cast and rpc.call
